A Popular Painting: Doolittle Pond

You know, it was just a year ago that I started painting in earnest. Up until then I only drew stuff for fun, other than when I illustrated the stories in my school bus book.

However, a recent painting I completed for a client (a commissioned work) has stirred a lot of response. On one Facebook page it’s garnered over 2,100 likes and 631 comments! It is a painting of an actual pond in Sandersville, Georgia, called Doolittle Pond. If you Google it you will find it on just about any Georgia map.

The painting is of the south side of the pond where a couple of old structures dating back to the 1800’s still stand. The actual property is a little more wooded and shady, but he wanted me to “clean up” the view so that the buildings could be seen clearly.

Instead of the cold-pressed paper I usually use for watercolor or Gouache, I went with a 12’x24″ stretched canvas made for watercolor. I am glad I did because the pond – the water part – was a real challenge! I had to “erase” it and redo it 3 times before I was happy!!

Needless to say, I put FAR more hours into this than I planned. The agreed price doesn’t even come close to what it’s worth, really. The owner is getting a steal of a deal 😉

But if you like it, you can contact me via email (pastoracbaker@yahoo.com) and I can provide options and pricing for prints. You can also follow me on Facebook at @AnthonyCBakerArt and/or my website (under development) WallHoleCoverings.com.

AND, if you’d like for me to paint something for you, I’m always willing to negotiate – especially for a watch 🙂

Help a Budding Artist Bloom Into a Tree

Remember how I told you in an earlier post that I had started painting? 

Well, I would LOVE for you to check out the new page (here on this blog) called, “Take Home My Art!”

When I started getting requests for prints, I had to go find a place that would make them. But now that I have, I want to share them with you!

However, just to make it easy for you on a Friday, I will go ahead and copy the page content to this post.

Have a blessed weekend!

Welcome to
“The Pastor’s Brush”

I want to make prints of my paintings available to everyone!
(and maybe make a few dollars)
Therefore, as they become available, I will offer them here for you to purchase.

UPDATE! FREE SHIPPING in the United States!

International purchases will require additional shipping (please contact me by email before purchasing): pastoracbaker@yahoo.com

NOTE: I do not make these prints; they are purchased from iprintfromhome.com. Their professional work is top-tier and will not disappoint.  Click here for a description of Giclee prints. If you want something that’s going to look like the real thing, this is what you want.

Pricing:

Larger and Smaller sizes available upon request (Larger prints cost more; smaller ones cost less)
Matting and framing are available at a reasonable additional cost (provide by L.H. Carter at Warthen Custom Frames)

8.5 x 11 Somerset Giclee Print…. $26
Semi-matte Photographic…. $13.50
9 x 12    Somerset Giclee Print…. $28
Semi-matte Photographic…. $15
12 x 18  Somerset Giclee Print…. $40.50

Warthen Lane, Warthen, GA. A typical middle-Georgia dirt road. (11″x15″ paper)

Available in your choice of print size and quality, but I’d recommend the larger Giclee print.

Mitchel Baptist Church, Mitchell, GA (original on 11 x 15 cold-pressed paper)

Available in your choice of print size and quality.

A reproduction of the 1953 baptistery painting that used to hang in Bethlehem Baptist Church, Warthen, GA. (original on 8 x 8 paper)

(A square painting) Available in multiple sizes and quality, but the photographic paper doesn’t look as good with this. I’d recommend the Somerset Giclee.

After the pine trees had been farmed in middle Georgia, not the Apocalypse. (9″x12″ canvas)

Available in multiple sizes of PAPER, even canvas!

There are multiple drawings, paintings, and photos of Bethlehem Baptist Church, but hardly anyone has focused on just the stained glass window in the front. The original painting is on 11 x 15 cold press paper.

 

This is a variation of the original stained glass window painting. Either one can be ordered in your choice of size and paper surface.

To Order:

For easy ordering, click on the PayPal link below and pay with a debit or credit card, or use your PayPal account.
Make sure to specify which painting, which size, and what type of paper in the “purpose” section.

Unless you want your print signed (LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU PAY), all orders will be drop-shipped from the printer and should arrive within a few days 🙂
